Ever Wish You Could Buy An Accelerated Wine-Making Device For The Home?

Happy Friday, everyone! Here is a video of some guys in matching zip-up sweaters telling us they've found a way to turn water into wine. Okay, that 'way' involves 'adding the ingredients necessary to make wine' but still: JESUS STUFF.

Maybe the One Good Thing About SantaCon

Every year since 1997, thousands of men and women dressed up as Santa, Elves, Reindeer and other Christmas-related things descend on the city to do a day-long brawl crawl. It's sort of like St. Patrick's Day in December. Drunk Santas, they will be everywhere tomorrow.

Are Russians Alcoholics to Support the State? (They Were at One Point)

Not anymore! But at one time, maybe! Stan Fedun explains why alcoholism is so rampant in Russia (1 in 5 Russian men die from alcohol related illnesses): “Stalin used vodka sales to help pay for the socialist industrialization of the Soviet Union. By the 1970s, receipts from alcohol again constituted a third of government revenues.”

How Your Cocktails Get Their Names

I will not order a cocktail if it has a dumb name. I will pick anything other than the cocktail with a dumb name. If it can't be avoided, I will point to it. "This one," I'll say. Or "the gin one." Won't say the dumb name.

Cheap Beer Proven to Be Popular Among Young and Hip

In Search of the $1 Draft Beer

Kyle Swenson went on a quest to find $1 draft beers where he lives in South Florida (I have also gone on a similar quest before), and discovered that the rise of brewing costs may make the $1 draft beer bar special a relic of the past (though, impossibly, he does find it).

Wine, the People’s Drink

Traditionally beer has been the everyman drink, but wine is catching up because young people will literally drink wine anywhere anytime. E. & J. Gallo, who own Barefoot (the number 1 wine in the U.S. lol), want to be part of wine’s takeover of the beverage market by making wine the drink you crave even when you’re parched with a line of wines meant to be served over ice. HAHAHA that already exists it’s called chardonnay.
